Sunjay *

1st October 2018

So exceptional was Sunjay’s performance in February we just had to have him back. Drawing from a rich, musical and cultural background it is hardly surprising that Sunjay has quickly become recognised as one of the UK’s rising stars. His performances have been described as “mature & confident”, while his guitar playing has been hailed as “superb, brilliant, experienced, intricate & faultless”. Sunjay’s style has that natural drift between folk and blues and both camps have recognised his obvious flair. There have been a clutch of award nominations, including winning the Wath Festival Young Performers Award. He also made the final selection for the BBC’s Young Folk Award in 2012, had three nominations at the Exposure Music Awards 2014 and was also recognised by the 2014 British Blues Awards.

Support: Honey & The Bear
Honey and the Bear are a roots inspired duo from Suffolk, England. Their softly interweaving vocal harmonies and foot stomping rhythms combine elements of Folk, Americana, Country, Blues and whatever else takes their fancy. The multi instrumentalist pair, is comprised of songwriters Jon Hart and Lucy Sampson, who have been writing together since early 2014, performing at well known festivals in the East of England such as Maverick, Ely Folk and FolkEast.
